We were promised a lot of things by the year 2022. We were supposed to have hoverboards, flying cars, underwater cities and teleporters by now. Most of these dreams have been dashed but there are one or two that have actually happened. While we can’t beam up to the starship Enterprise like in an episode of Star Trek or cruise around on Marty McFly’s hoverboard, there is one promise of the future that we could snatch up for ourselves right now. Popular culture has long promised jetpacks. James Bond, GI Joe, and even Marvel heroes like Iron Man or the new Captain America all jet through the air in style, saving the world with one of the coolest aviation designs for a singular person we’ve ever come up with.
There are a ton of companies who are working on building the best jetpacks to fulfill all of the wildest fantasies. These include some names that you probably don’t recognize but should. That includes the likes of Gravity Industries which is about as close to Stark Industries as we have. Then there’s Bell Aerosystems and their Jet Belt from the 1960’s that James Bond used in style. Of course, there are a few you would recognize. Then there’s NASA which had to drop millions to make a jetpack to save astronauts from becoming Sandra Bullock in Gravity. Google X almost had a pack of their own too. Then there’s Adam Savage’s real life Iron Man suit which flies and everything. Perhaps the coolest of all are the flying firefighters of Dubai.
So which of thesepacks is the coolest and how much do they cost? Let’s find out!
